I am a Kabi-Kabi [also known as Gubbi-Gubbi], Wakka-Wakka, Koa. educator and artist, who has worked in education from the 1980’s and as a professional artist from 1993. I have developed and presented artworks through my studio art practice for forty-two exhibitions across local, national and international venues and forums. Born into the dormitory systems on the Aboriginal Settlement of Cherbourg, my dedication to education and art, and all of its forms, evolved out of the intensities of attitudes and values that prevailed in the historic treatment of Cherbourg residents, and other Indigenous Australians. During my career as a senior executive in Queensland education, I have been responsible for curriculum, staffing and resourcing to 250 state schools in the Peninsular region, and was a consultant to the Director-general, Education Queensland, and Minister for Education.
